How does a contractor license bond work?

A contractor license bond protects clients from damages resulting from faulty contractor work. The bond ensures that contractors will meet all applicable regulations and codes of the obligee (the City of Edina). If the contractor fails to follow the bond agreement fully, clients can file a claim to receive compensation.

To obtain your contractor bond in Edina, you’ll pay a premium, a small percentage of the bond amount. ZipBonds can often issue bonds quickly at a typical premium of just $100.

You can usually avoid claims by working professionally and communicating well with clients. Be sure to answer any client complaints as they arise to prevent minor problems from turning into costly claims.

Those with poor credit can still obtain the bond they need. For many contractor bonds, we don’t even need to pull credit. We often issue them instantly for just $100.
